Making Pregnancy Beautiful For Real

Today, Lauren Conrad’s contributor, Ilana Saul, who’s dealt with pregnancy two times already, passes along valuable advice to those that are about to encounter morning sickness of whatever level, hankering of all types of food, and even avoiding foods they love normally.

Ilana relies on resident nutritionist, Kelly LeVeque, who happens to be expecting first dispenses out cravings of all types, where the general rule is to have healthier versions of food if you crave carbs, fruit if it’s sweets, dark chocolate if it’s chocolate, cottage cheese for dairy, califlower and shrimp if soul food, but do these in individual portions instead of bulk to avoid bad habits now, and after pregnancy.

If you suddenly get sick to your stomach over the foods (even the healthy ones) you normally live otherwise, seek out alternatives so you still get your healthy doses in and try mixing them with alternative food.

Once you do have morning sickness, be sure of the level of morning sickness you’re suffering from, bad bouts involve a doctor, while mild ones only require Vitamin B6, any solution to morning sickness at any level still needs a doctor’s advice beforehand.

And when you’re in the 12th to 14th week of your pregnancy, check with yourself to see which level of health you are in, so you can go on to maintain a healthy lifestyle in terms of food and activity until you give birth.

Toting and Toweling

Lauren Conrad today gave an accessory report on beach totes and beach towels, proclaiming that if you want to take the beach seriously, forget grabbing the grocery bags and home linens, go for the real thing, and do it in style, plus The Little Market speaks the majority.

This Space Is Woman

The Untitled Space is pleased to present multimedia series “ONLY YOU” by Indira Cesarine at SCOPE Art Show in Basel, Switzerland in partnership with ArtHelix Gallery and SHIM.

Cesarine’s medium format photography, welded steel sculpture and video art will be on view in Booth A43 from June 12th to 17th for the duration of the fair.

“ONLY YOU” is a conceptual narrative portrait series chronicling a woman’s emotions as she traverses a metaphorical landscape of love, loss, abuse and betrayal. Each artwork is part of the greater narrative of her story.

The series is based on autobiographical experiences of the artist.

It was photographed on a medium format RZ camera as well as on HD video.

The limited edition photographs and welded steel sculptures were completed in 2017 and unveiled last November at The Untitled Space gallery along with a dance performance by Bryn Cohn + Artists inspired by the series.

Photography from the series was additionally featured at CICA Museum, South Korea as part of their January exhibition “Portrait 2018”.

The video art edition of “ONLY YOU” premiered at Art Basel Miami for an exhibition in collaboration with American Friends of The Louvre and Miami Art Museum.

The video has additionally been screened internationally at exhibitions including “Factory Project” at London’s Red Bull Studios in collaboration with Graffik Gallery, at an event for Cannes Film Festival in France, and at the Big Screen Plaza in Chelsea, New York.

Indira Cesarine is a multimedia artist who works with photography, video, painting, printmaking and sculpture.

A graduate of Columbia University with a triple major in Art History, French and Women’s Studies, she additionally studied art and photography at Parsons School of Design, International Center of Photography, School of Visual Arts, The Art Students League and New York Academy of Art.

Cesarine had her first solo show at the age of sixteen at Paul Mellon Arts Center.

Empowering feminist themes are often the point of departure for Cesarine’s multi-sensory series.

Her artwork questions the place of humanity in context with contemporary civilization and is often influenced by autobiographical content and women’s history at large.

As a multi-disciplinarian artist she works across several mediums and techniques to convey a rich and diverse narrative, with an emphasis on thematic subject matter that engages a narrative of social discourse and art activism.

Her artwork has been featured internationally at many art galleries, museums and festivals, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Mattatuck Museum, CICA Museum, Getty Images Gallery, French Embassy Cultural Center, Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, Art Basel Miami, Cannes Film Festival and the International Festival Photo Mode to name a few.

In 2014, her public art sculpture, “The Egg of Light” was exhibited at Rockefeller Center as part of the Fabergé Big Egg Hunt.

Her work was recently auctioned at Sotheby’s New York for the annual “Take Home A Nude” art benefit.

Artist’s Statement: Indira Cesarine

“’ONLY YOU’ is an autobiographic series that I photographed and directed, working with a model to reenact sentiments I was feeling.

This series tells the story not just of my emotional trauma, but that of many women who have been abused and betrayed by people they trusted, and how difficult it can be to process those emotions.

In light of the #MeToo movement, many women are finding the strength to tell their stories.

I have had many experiences that have crossed the line, in my personal life as well as throughout my career, and this series resonates with me as particularly relevant, a metaphorical mirror of how many women are feeling right now.

You can feel the emotions in this series—they range from anger to sadness to disbelief to shame…frustration, fear— It’s an emotive series that focuses on the eyes as a portal.”

Lauren Conrad’s people teach baby budget for college



Love That Little Piggy Bank

Each year that’s passed for nearly 50 years, it’s gets harder and harder to save for a rainy day, let alone save for college, but the folks at ScholarShare 529 College Savings Plan provided by your government provided Lauren Conrad’s gang Wednesday tips to conquer inflation and save for alma mater.

The good ole 529 plan we hear about from many public service announcements says we need to make a montly budget of 50 percent for needs like household bills, 30 percent for discretional spending, and 20 percent for savings for your little ones who aspire to be the President of the United States one day.

Now we all love to buy new stuff, but it’s probable to either borrow stuff you want so you love it for instant gratification, and/ or buy it, then sell it when you get over yourself to put away money for Yale or Harvard.

Now 529 doesn’t have something other savings accounts practice, 529 is 100 percent tax free, so take advantage of that tax free savings by saving as early as during a mother’s pregnancy, one can also get their friends and family to put into the 529 plan at baby showers, christenings, and all throughout the child’s life, like with $100/ month at least.

Surviving Hot Strand Damage

Team Lauren Conrad struck again on Wednesday about keeping strands healthy in the summer heat, like drinking 6 to 8 eight ounce glasses of water a day, wear a heat to avoid sun damage, use natural oils to protect hair, sparce on hot tools, and spray leave-in conditioner before salt and chlorine water submergence.

Lauren Conrad conducts the tasting of beer



How Many Bottles Of Beer On The Wall????????

Whether you’re in fashion, at a reception, a barbecue, night out, happy hour, or any given moment, you know you’ve had your share of alcohols on tap, bottle, draft, chilled or hot, whether it’s wine, cocktails, whiskey, vodka, beer, and so forth.

However, for Lauren Conrad, she and her gang have not devoted a fifth or even an ounce  of their Lovely Libations to beer, Lauren personally changed all that today with a beginner’s guide to beer tasting, what to know about all beer types, and how to correctly pour it.

Lauren splashes the bottom of the glass about hops, flowers used before beer’s refrigerated to help preserve the beer while in transport, giving its bitter and aromatic flavor, and malts which is malted barley is a grain that gives beer its color, determining if a beer will be light or dark, and even sweet.

Lauren then doubles down on beer types, starting with lagers and pilsners for those who like crisp and refreshing beers that too are on the lighter side, ales with a fuller body come in amber and very fruity with high hop amounts that mainly come in IPA’s, stouts are the darkest and fullest body beers to man (a.k.a. Guinness), porters are similar to stouts but with a chocolate-y side, and sours are similar to cider which make the beer tart and fruity.

There’s a good pour of beer into a glass if not drank by bottle or can, angle glass at 45 degrees, pour to glasses middle, pour slowly, and only a dime-size of foam should be on top.

For Daniel plus Lauren, yours truly has tried all types of beers, but lagers are they’re absolute favor, and Yuengling and La Birra Di Meni are the beers of choice for this beer enthusiast.

You Look Pretty After Your Workout

While you consume beer, you will definitely have to workout, especially intense cardio and/ or bikram yoga sessions to burn the beer off, followed by a shower after those intense sessions.

However, if you do less intense work outs, then Lauren Conrad’s Ilana Saul today shows you how to master a post-workout primp, being applying melt proof makeup, touching up your tresses, and doing a post-workout wipedown of yourself in a few steps and products.

Carve Designs defines women’s outerwear at UBM Pre-Coterie

Not All Bikinis Are Alike

Carve Designs distinct itself immediately today by showing off their swimwear that’s more than just a swimsuit that you lay out on here at UBM’s new Pre-Coterie event, where’s its establishing itself as an appetizer to the full course after February and before September.

Carve Designs is one of the first swimwear lines to target the outdoor industry, but it’s crucial to separate the outdoor industry from the surf industry and the fashion industry, the outdoor industry are brands like The North Face, REI’s, and trade shows in Denver, Colorado specializing in outdoor apparel.

Carve Designs fills the gap for those women who love outdoor activities like biking, hiking, surfing, or swimming in the lake with outdoor swimwear, board shorts, hiking gear, crop tops, full on tops, etc.; because the outdoor apparel industry started out only attracting to men, and no one had catered to women in the outdoors.

Though Carve Designs do prints and florals just like any other swimwear line, but Carve Designs is an activewear line that’s not just a fashion swimwear line, it’s durable material also is UPF 50 that goes right up to the neck, which prevents sunburn.

Carve Designs is a supportive activewear line that’s made for the girl who bikes, hikes, swims, and does surfing, while it’s not a competitive line, Carve Designs supports the girl who likes to play volleyball on the beach, jump around acting goofy, and do whatever else the wilderness calls for.

Out of the Carve Designs, women just love the UPF sun shirt, where all coverage from neck to torso is vital, allowing for a flattering waistband to make room at the abs, the sun shirt also has neck zippers that allows for full coverage with long sleeves and shoulder pads, and in really soft fabric.

Carve Design’s newest thing this fall will be the expansion of resort-wear with coverup tops to wear over CD’s bikinis, and one-piece swimsuits with open back, short sleeves, and one-piece reversible swimsuits showing off other prints not the norm (as it was with fashion back in the day), catering to all body types.

Carve Design’s distinction pays off with its solid outdoor wear for the woman who doesn’t just want to lay on the beach all day, or be known as the Las Vegas pool girl looking pretty.
